The Boston Celtics starters played deep into the fourth quarter Wednesday despite the team having essentially secured the league's best record, but Kevin Garnett doesn't think that's a bad thing.

"We're preparing for something way bigger than the present," Garnett said after the game. "I just don't believe that you get to the playoffs and you wake up in the morning and blink and all of a sudden you turn it on."

Before the game, Doc Rivers said he would start resting his starters in the coming weeks, potentially keeping them out of some games just to keep them fresh.
